Hi, Are you sure you have the correct motorway ? The A16 / A26 is not near Rouen.

The A16 runs north from Calais via Amiens to Paris
Loosely to the east of Rouen
The A28 branches off the A16 at Abbeville to Rouen
Sorry, I can't help as we always overnight south of Rouen
The A26 is no where near

Not quite "just passed", unless you're on the way back of course, but this one is pretty good:

Yes Andy,
This is a good one.:)
Also good is the aire in St Valery (7,5€/day) and not that good 2 aires in Le Crotoy (5€).
In Bray-sur Somme: 'halte fluviale', Promenade de Wicquet (N49°56'3 E 2°42'43)
As for wilding: near Crécy at the monument in the 'Forêt de Crécy' D111(battle-French-English in the middle-ages) and at Rue at the coast (N 50 14 58.6, E 1 35 34.3).

Visited St Valery en Caux, listed as the best aires. Packed like sardines and very unkept looking. Gave it a wide berth.

Not sure of your route/destination but stayed at Honfluer. Good aires, plenty hookups, wc and short walk to town, only 7 €/day.

As I said details of your route would help

I realised that there are 2 St Valery's.:confused::eek: The one I mean is St Valery-sur-Somme at the mouth of the Somme river. I agree St Valery-en-Caux is a shamble.:mad:

I hope I did not appear to be pedantic as that was not my intention.

The first aires we ever stayed at was at St Valery-sur-Somme. Lovely village and plenty space in aires. I was concerned that SWMBO would not have taken to the aires but we then went on to stay on a further 14. We are off again for a 3 > 6 weeks and will go to Brittany this time and if it is too cold will go down to the Med but still in France all in aires.

I have a posting about buying my return ticket in France and if it is easy, we may well stay longer

I need to stop between Rouen and Le Mans. - ideally we will stop around about 150 miles from Calais. Any advice would be welcome - this is our first trip to Europe, and we are a little worried !!!:(

Do not worry it is so easy. We went to France for the first time in July/August which are the busy months and had absolutely no problems in getting parked up. We at first went with the thought that we may give Aires a go and ended up on I think 14 of them. Going back in 2 week for 3>6 weeks.

Tips 1 Get the "All Aires" book
2 Get SatNav
3 Plan to arrive at the Aires before 4pm to get a good site, this does relate to the time we went but it should be easier off season

Enjoy as we have found France welcomes MHs

Edit
I do not have my Aires book to hand but here is a link, albeit in French http://www.campingcar-infos.com/Francais/recherche.php#synchro

No worries :p, try this:
I reccon you want to stop somewhere at the Seine crossing near Rouen.
I suggest to take the motorway from Calais via Boulogne, Abbeville towards le Havre. Leave the motorway at exit 9 near Yvetot and take the D131 towards the Seine bridge (Pont de Brotonne –tol). Cross the bridge and get back on the motorways near Bourg Achard. This way you avoid Rouen.
In this area are a few ‘aires’ and parkings.

(P= parking; PM= ‘aire’, W= wild) (...= grid Michelin Atlas)
CAUDEBEC-en-Caux (35AE19)
P quai de la Seine (at the Seine)
>Louviers : P « à la grâce de Dieu » 8pl,
PM piscine (5min> centre), S=2€
P Maison du Parc, Route des Fruits
MAULEVIER Ste GERTRUDE (19AR18)
W Forêt de Trait-Maulevier, aire des Vaux
Over the bridge :
La MAILLERAYE-s-SEINE (35AR19)
P Pont de Brotonne (near the south exit of the bridge)
PM Rue de la Libération (Seineshore) , 20pl S=1,5 €(token) N 49° 29' 4'' E00° 46' 24''
N.D.-de-BLIQUETUIT (35AR19)
P “Maison Parc de Brotonne”
HEURTEAUVILLE (35AS19)
P > Bac du Trait (boat ferry)
P private: ’ La grange Dimière’
BOUQUETOT (35AR20)
P village
BOURG-ACHARD (35AS21)
P Place Champ de Foire
Le BEC-HELLOUIN (35AT22)
P abbaye 'Notre Dame du Bec' N 49 13 781 E 00 42 909
Abbaye >r. 200m : P anc.gare (ex railway station)

Have a good trip.:)

Hi;

If you want to be close to Rouen itself overnight parking is allowed in the carpark on the banks of the Seine overlooking the cathedral. We used it for day parking two years ago but didn't stay the night...

>Rouen Parking< (http://www.campingcar-infos.com/Francais/aire.php?numid=950&Localité=ROUEN)

If you want a nice quiet little free aire then try the one at Oissel about 2km south of Rouen, used it this year, church bells chime every 1/4 hour but are turned off from 2200 - 0700. Lovely location in parkland adjacent to the Seine and only about 1km from the A13 which links to the A28 if you are heading south..

Hi

As others have said there are plenty of choices. I can recommend the following Aires:
a) Cleres - about 120 miles from Calais, just north of Rouen and with free electricity provided.
b) Mailleraye sur Seine - 150 miles from Calais, west of Rouen and a superb riverside location.
c) Rugles - about 200 miles from Calais, almost halfway between Rouen and Le Mans, with free electricity provided (but last time we were there the fresh water supply was not turned on). Again, a beautiful riverside location and an interesting village.
All of these - and more - are in the Aires book that has been referred to. But don't worry, France is the most motorhome-friendly country in the world - if you can't find anywhere just ask at the local police station (we have even had police escorts to the local Aire when we have had problems finding one). If only England would learn from the French..........

Thanks to everyone for their help and info. We have ordered the Aires books, and, hopefully all will be well. We go on 6 December, so have been busy today at the Lincoln Show buying the necessary

There is an Aire at Oissel near the river in Rouen. Position N49.33765, E001.08763. Its free.

Has around 5 marked spaces with service point., I think you need a credit card to use the services if I remember correctly. Caution though if arriving from the north with a large vehicle as there are weight limits and low bridges in Oissel. A better route would be to travel south through Rouen on the D18 until you hit the A13 at junction 22 then come off at Junction 21 and follow the D7/D13 signposted to Oissel. Immediately you cross the river turn left and the Aire is along the river bank after 250mtrs
